All eyes were on some other Magellanic penguins at the San Francisco Zoo a couple weeks back— remember the love triangle of Harry, Pepper, and Linda? To recap that
soap opera story, male Pepper got a new home when Harry took up with a female penguin.
Anyway, same species but different birds, these penguin chicks forge their way to a new home on Penguin Island in the annual March of the Penguins event. Yeah, they didn't have quite as dramatic a tale as the Emperor penguins featured in the movie of the same name, but these birds surely had to endure more (human) crowds as they traveled down some pavement to the new watery habitat.
